The SafeLink Advice Service are offering confidential support via monthly sessions for UWE Bristol staff and students who have experienced any form of sexual violence and/or abuse.

SafeLink is a local specialist organisation that provides independent support for anyone (women, men and children) who has been the victim of rape and sexual abuse across the Avon and Somerset area.

Confidential advice can be given on numerous topics such as specialist support for survivors, therapeutic services, and the police process including reporting and how to access support. Please note you will not be made to do anything you are not comfortable with such as report to the police.

This advice session will be held at the Student Centre in the Farmhouse on Frenchay campus on the third Wednesday of every month from 12.30 - 16.30 starting on 18 August. You can choose to speak in-person or alternatively you can do so over the phone or virtually. Appointments will be with an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor (ISVA) and last for 30 minutes.
